Google Chrome 21.0.1180.81 released to Beta Channel

Google Chrome Beta Channel Update (August 17th, 2012)
The Google Chrome Beta channel has been updated to version 21.0.1180.81 for Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Chrome Frame platforms. This release contains a number of bug fixes, and some stability improvements over the previous version.

Google Chrome 21 Beta includes two new APIs: the getUserMedia API and the Gamepad Javascript API.

The getUserMedia API lets users grant web apps access to their camera and microphone without a plug-in. This is the first step in enabling high quality video and audio communication as part of WebRTC, a powerful new real-time communications standard for the open web platform.

The Gamepad Javascript API helps developers access input from any standard gamepad connected to the user’s machine, creating a richer gameplay experience with these controllers. Gamepad access was made available for NaCl in May, and since its introduction has enabled awesome games like AirMech.

Google Chrome 21 Beta also brings a new and improved printing experience for Google Cloud Print. Now your printers in Google Cloud Print are integrated right into Chrome’s print dialog, so you can easily print to your Cloud Ready printer, Google Drive, Chrome on your mobile device, or one of over 1,800 FedEx Offices.
